Course Description
CAD 3-Solid Modeling is an advanced course where students will
learn advanced elements of technical drawing, rendering and rapid prototyping.
Instruction in the use and function of the computer aided drafting (CAD) programs and
accepted drafting techniques and conventions will be demonstrated. Elements of
Engineering Design will be addressed from part creation to assembly to engineering
drawing creation. Students will study on-screen testing analysis and well as rendering
and animation of mechanical drawings using Solidworks. Units in mechanics such as
power transmission, pneumatics and hydraulics will be studied. Students will also gain
insight to the world of automation through the study of LASER, CNC and rapid
prototyping activities. This course is designed to be for students who are interested in
the field of Mechanical Engineering and who have a desire to learn on an independent
timeframe and experiment with 3D drawing software.
Prerequisite(s): CAD 1 and Permission
Course Outcomes
 Develop skills in the use of technological tools and systems
 Apply problem-solving techniques in search for solutions to technological problems
 Acquire broad-based transferable skills and knowledge which will be useful in future
employment, further education and life’s experiences
 Synthesize learning of mathematics, science, and social studies concepts through
technological activities
 Locate, understand, and interpret written information, communicate thoughts, ideas,
information, and messages, and create documents, reports, graphs, and flow charts
